VSI Helps Predict Storage Needs for Data Analytics
Current Data Analytics Demand
Data analytics is becoming more essential for business success. Data growth averages around 50% to 100% per year because of improved collection methods. Data growth creates increased demand for data storage.
Organizations face rising hardware costs along with the increased cost of managing the increased need for storage. IT Professionals are looking at Storage Resource Management (SRM) to help them navigate their storage environments and improve data analytics functions.
Storage Resource Management
SRM involves optimizing the efficiency and speed with which a storage area network (SAN) utilizes available drive space. SRM identifies underutilized capacity in storage servers, identifies non-critical data that could be moved to less-expensive storage, and helps predict future capacity requirements. Predicting storage requirements allows companies to allocate data analytics resources to improve decision making and improve ROI.
